Today I Am Grateful


Have you ever said the phrase “I just can’t catch a break!” in a moment of complete and utter defeat? Like everything is toppling over one by one and you start feeling like a failure in every aspect of your life because not ONE THING is going right in your life. Beautiful reader, I’ve been there more times that I’d like to admit. 

This weekend was rough. I am just going to be absolutely truthful in saying not everything is perfect these days. 

However, I have noticed that finding the joy in life, finding the good in my surroundings, and speaking truth and favor into my life can drastically change my perspective in a moment. So today, I encourage you, as we both walk through this season and the next, to find the good that each day brings even when it feels like you just can’t catch a break. 

I want to be able to come back to this moment, this post, and re-read this the next time I’m at a low point in life and be able to declare aspects of my life for which I am extremely grateful.

Today I am grateful for...

  • My Relationship with God | Without Him I would be nothing. He’s given me so much that I don’t deserve. He continues to love me because His love for me is unconditional. He reveals new, encouraging, and exciting truths to me every day, and sometimes in my dreams.

  • My Family | Though they will be far from me in just a few short weeks, I’m grateful for the 20 years of living with them and many more years of continuing to love them. I’m excited to continue to enjoy their company and support through life’s challenges.

  • My Grandparents | Who have done nothing but offer full assistance through this move, and who have given me a place to live with no limits until I can find a place of my own.

  • My Boyfriend | Who is the most kind and loving, who has a heart to serve people, who never EVER stops smiling, who gives me endless hugs and kisses through every season. My teammate to walk with through life, my best friend, my positive influence, my dream. 

  • My Job(s) & More Jobs | I am grateful for my current positions, though I can’t support myself fully with my income yet, my positions offer growth in my dreams and constant learning opportunities. I’m grateful for the relationships I have with my authority and co-workers and hope to continue growing in those relationships and teams.

  • My Church Family | Who has offered countless support and has assured my family and I numerous times that I am fully cared for in their absence. I have a home and a family at Church and that’s what keeps my peace alive during this transitional season. 

  • My Friends | I have a few, but they’re quality. Quality over quantity is what comes to mind when friends come and go in my life. The ones who have stuck with me and kept my sanity levels to a norm, and have forced me to have fun even when all I want to do is work and go to school and be an adult. I love them and I totally appreciate them. Like a lot.

These are just a few of the countless people and things for which I am grateful. Now I’ve got butterflies in my stomach and all the gross warm fuzzy feelings in my heart. I’m ready to take on this new day and face everything life has for me in this season.
